“Caribbean Food”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This restaurant is situated in the old town and serves excellent Caribbean tapas food. Three tapas dishes per person are more than sufficient. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly.

“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is the first time that i have tried Caribbean food. But my wife was keen to try it. It was fantastic, On arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady ( who it turned out to be the owner ) Her husband turns out to be the chef.. She was most helpful as i was unfamiliar with with menus dishes. I had a goat dish /5 spice beef dish /and jerk chicken. It was fantastic, so many great flavours. If you get a chance to try this little restaurant , give it a go. You will not regret it. I would also say the lady in charge, ( i think she is called Jenette ) Is a wonderful host/waitress . Thanks for a great evening !! We will be back , next year .

“CARIBBEAN FOOD AT ITS FINEST..”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

I love caribbean food,so tried this tapas carribbean restaurant.Let me tell you this the best carribean food i have tasted ever.We had lamb and mint with sweet potato,dry ribs,garlic and ginger prawns,rice,dumplings,carribean chicken.The food was delicious tasty and full of flavour.The restaurant seems very clean tidy and nice decor inside,quite busy inside.Eating really lovely food with some reggae music quitely playing in the background was so relaxing and enjoyable.As of the reviews of the greasy food from some trip advisors,its not greasy,it is cooked with oil and its own juices.Please do not invite me round yours for a dry meal please,i like to mop up my bread with juices left over from my meal.Also if you want to take your kids for a meal don,t take them to this restaurant,there is a mcDonalds in the birosfera.

“Wasn't sure wether to play safe or try this restaurant - glad I did. Superb”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Saw this high on the list on trip advisor and never been a fan of tapas let alone Caribbean so had a look and the menu catered for all our tastes. We were given a warm welcome , told the lady we were new and she gave us friendly and excellent advice, no over selling here. Had ribs, jerk chicken, salted cod, potatoes, coleslaw, pork, 5 spice beef and some incredible prawns with 2 soft drinks all under 50 euros. Incredible flavours and filled us up. Lovely place , wonderful food, good host , highly recommend it
